Matching Contribution Challenge and Drawing for 4 days/3 nights in Loreto, Big Sur, Mexico
Drawing Dates November 9th - November 30th
We have a winner! A resident of Aptos was the lucky recipient of this voucher. Thanks to all who participated, you not only met the $5,000 goal, but you surpassed it by contributing a total of $6,175! The members of the steering committee were so moved by this overwhelming show of support that we have personally matched all contributions over $5,000. This means that all the contributions have been matched, resulting in a grand total of $12,350!
A generous neighbor who wishes to remain anonymous has offered to match all contribution made by November 30th up to a total of $5,000. This is an excellent opportunity to have your contribution doubled!
We were moved to offer a matching funds donation to NOPOC because we share the group's passion for our community, the environment, and the need to get involved in protecting the natural beauty of our neighborhoods, not only for our own benefit, but for all who pass through this area and will be impacted by the Santa Cruz 115kv Reinforcement Project. We hope the opportunity to "double your money" will inspire others to contribute and get involved.

Also, Don Hirschaut president of Cabovillas.com is a neighbor and a supporter of NOPOC, who has once again generously donated an accommodation certificate for 2 people to stay 4 days/3 nights in an EP Plan/Deluxe Studio at the Villa del Palmar in Loreto, Baja Sur, Mexico . This offer is inclusive of food and beverages, but not airfare. The certificate must be used for travel by July 1 2015, and has a value of up to $1,000.
I chose to live in the Santa Cruz community due to the amazing coast, redwood forest and mountains. I am supporting NOPOC because I want to help to preserve the pristine nature of our community and I feel that the reinforcement project proposed by PG&E threatens the peace and enjoyment of our region by all concerned.

NOPOC will give this certificate to one lucky contributor. Every new contribution to NOPOC of $25 between November 9th and November 30th @ midnight will be entered into the drawing and matched. You can enter the drawing as many times as you like by contributing in multiples of $25, for example if you contribute $100 you will be entered 4 times in the drawing!
